    Good stuff. Better breakdown than what we get from most of the networks. I'm sorry you blew the outcome prediction though. ;)

    I think Pollard is going to be a key factor in coverage.

    Excellent as always. I think you misspoke in there though. I know you meant to say you gave the Titans the edge.

    Nice work! This is why it behooves the titans to play a lot of 3 WR sets and force the Steelers to take a LB (their strength) off the field to add a nickel (relative weakness gives us the advantage). It;'s also why Locker needs to be able to audible quick hitters, hitches, wr bubble screens etc when he sees stuff like that. I think we'll also see him go to either max protect (in this case 7 blockers vs their 6 rushers with man coverage on our outside WR (one covered by Troy) and either an inside or outside LB on Walker or CJ depending on which blocks (draw or screen game). With max protect, we can hurt them with even slants, hitches, quicks outs or similar routes. Personally, I find the draw and screen game are less effective against the Steelers, but you will have some 'new' guys playing for them and we know Worilds and Jones really wanna get after the QB!

    Not too many years ago, some teams really put the Steelers D in a bind going 4 WR sets and throwing all over the field on them as they couldn't match up. With Locker having zero experience that's a little too risky for this game (unless we have to) but keep a close eye on personel groupings. Base or heavy packages will favor the Steelers (un;less Warmack and Levitre start dominating the interior) while 3 and 4 wr sets give us more of a personel advantage (though fewer blockers for Locker to protect with.

    EmDiggy always well versed. Why hasn't a news station picked this dude up yet?

    Probably does too much homework.
